Who this is, and the champion you are using...
This champion is simply put the initiator. This champion's ultimate is the ultimate suppress, in the fact that it can not only suppress but also move the enemies to you almost assuring a kill in the right hands. You will get a lot of assists doing this. However, with this build you should be able to survive on your own.
early game he can be pushed over and cannot do much damage to enemy champions, and he eats mana for breakfast.
Once you have your Nashor's Tooth you will be fine on mana.
His passive makes sure he is always prepared with his cool downs.
To top it off his ultimate is amazing. Set in the right hands you can get a quick kill.
The jungle is simple enough, and runs basic runes and masteries for a jungler. You shouldn't have too many problems with it unless someone counters you. Leashes are nice and if you can get Golem in the bush then you can hit him with the E (Skill shot) but make sure you hit all of the minions. After a few hits from the golem (3-4) you can use a health potion. You can get away with more health with the leash (although you don't "need it") and you can do it a second or 2 quicker. From there you can level up his W, and start walking over to the wolves. With blue buff you will be gaining about 34 mana per 5 seconds which means you can freely use your E to hit the wolves, and you can get HP from the big wolf. Of course with your shield this means that you will be able to get out a little more HP and if you need to you can pop another potion. Now onto the wraiths. Same strategy shield up, E for all, although this time kill the small wraiths first then the big wraith. The only reason for this is that you will get more Health if you hit them first and in the end it is actually quicker. You might be low on mana after this so you can hold off red about 5 seconds for some mana, then take him on using the same strategy you used for golem although this time if you deem it necessary you can use the shield. After that you should be able to take the smaller golems without much hassle and finish just around 5 minutes for your jungle.
*obviously Smite the lizard and golem for the additional gold.*
For Creeping, just be sure to land your E first, then either take the life back with your Q, or hit them off one by one if you have the time and need the life.
You will be moving around the map with the greatest of ease, allowing you to hold lanes and get to team fights no matter where they are, because of your W (which should almost always be active late game). However your lane abilities early game are very limited at the moment because you lack the damage to hold your weight against enemy champions. He is a very able champion, and can cause a team to crumble just because of his Ultimate. Early game he is not Great, but late game he shines bright.
